Foodie Fridays - Almost Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Its Ice Cream Month over at USA and there are many ice cream recipes floating around in the net, it is difficult not to give in to the temptation and make our own ice cream!  Since this will be the first time we are making this, I thought I will let DinoBoy do most of the preparation.  So I choose a very simple recipe that needed only 3 ingredients.


DinoBoy was excited that we are making ice cream today, he was actually surprised that we can actually MAKE them in our own kitchen.  He started to go "Mum, can I help? Can I help please??" while I was taking the ingredients out from the fridge, I have to assure him many times that he will be making it so just be patient for a little while.

We finally started the process, we read the recipe together and I let him do the work.  Why did I say that it is an almost chocolate chip ice cream?  Simply because we do not have them at home, I used the packet of chocolate couverture milk drops that has been sitting in our fridge for ages.  Need it to be chipped?  Easy peasy!  Give a 7 year old a pestle and you have your chocolate chipped.  

While DinoBoy was happy that he got to touch and use my Tefal mixer to whip the heavy cream, he wasn't happy about the noise it made when I turned it to turbo, he said "Mum, let me know when its ready." and ran back into the living room, away from the noise.

His expression tells it all!

It took us about 45 mins and its done!  While I was scooping the cream into a container DinoPapa wanders into the kitchen to check things out, he couldn't resist stealing a little bit to taste and said YUM! 


After sitting in the freezer over night, I took out the container and with an ice cream scoop in hand, I slid it across the ice cream.  It went over so smoothly n easy forming a small ball of ice cream, I was smiling and feeling happy, since every one are still sleeping, I have to said a silent WOOHOO! inside my heart


There you have it!  The DinoFamily first home made ice cream!  We will be making ice cream of different flavour soon.  No more store bought ice cream!


Ingredients
* 2 cups heavy whipping cream
* 1 can (380g)  sweeten condensed milk
* 1 cup chocolate chips

Method
1. In a mixing bowl beat the whipping cream until stiff peak forms.
2. Pour the condensed milk into a bowl and stir in the chocolate chips
3. Fold in the whipped cream
4. Pour into container and leave it over night in the freezer compartment

Notes
1. I do not have a sweet tooth so I find that the ice cream is a tad too sweet.  I used a can of Dutch Lady's full cream condensed milk, perhaps I should use lesser of it next time.

Remember, since you made the ice cream you can add in any toppings into it, we may be adding some marshmallows when we are eating them later today.

And today we are joining We Scream for Ice Cream linky hosted by Life With The Crust Cut Off and This Silly Girl’s Life, click the link and enter into the world of ice cream!  Have fun making the ice cream!  I know we did~

    1. Why not Jenn? You don't need a mixer, you can hand whip the cream.
